For those of you who do not know what a ziggurat is, just imagine the City of Westminster College turned upside down, then you will get some sort of an idea. Essentially, it was an ancient temple tower that seems to have inspired this massive educational structure.

Designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the City of Westminster College is located in West London. An airy design, it is an energy-efficient building that relies on solar shading, natural lighting, green roofs and more.

Completely in 2010, the City of Westminster College opened up with quite a bang--a flash dance mob bang, to be exact. Considering its welcoming vibe, I'm not surprised that this building is so creative. The new building boasts an exhibition area, a theatre and a café that encourages community.
